Lower Back Conditions
At some time in their lives, most people will suffer from lower back pain. This pain can be due to a wide range of causes. For some low back pain patients, there is a genetic component to their condition. Others may suffer through low-back pain brought on by a mechanical problem. Most often, lower back conditions are caused by injuries or the wear and tear of aging. The good news is that the majority of cases improve on their own. For pain that persists, a visit to a spine specialist is a necessity.
